Michelin Pilot SuperSport 275/35/19?

Hey guys -

Ive tried the search function with no luck. I currently have the Michelin's 275/35/19 in the rear and wanted to see if I can change to 285/35/19, with no fitment/rubbing issues. My car is bone stock, no competition package, with the 220 wheels.

All help would be highly appreciated!

Aren't 220 rear only 9.5" wide? if so 285 aren't going to fit right i dont think. Most people say even w/ the ZCP package(10" rears) 275's are right and 285's are too much, of coarse you'll have the people that put 285's on 10" rims a say" they fit perfect, But they dont.

You're right... the rears are 9.5". Thanks for the reminder, the 285's won't work then

Tire widths aren't terribly standardized. I'd be willing to bet (using nothing than my gut) that Pirelli's 285 is probably narrower than Michelin's 285 in the 285/30/19 fitment on the GTS.

Per tirerack.com Pirelly P Zero Corsa 285/30-19 (M3 GTS tire) has an 11 inch tread width. This is more than most 285/30-19 or 285/35-19 on tire rack. Just browse through the specs and look at tread width. For comparison PSS at 295/30-19 has an 11.5 inch tread width. Tirerack lists a 10 inch rim as the minimum acceptable for 295/30-19 tire. For most 285/3X-19 tires it lists 9.5 inch as the minimum acceptable.

I was thinking about running 275 on my rear 220 wheels like you. How do they look and fit on oem 220's? I'm getting ready to buy tires but I don't want them to look ghetto or abnormal.
